Trump Admits That The Economy Fares Better Under Democrats In Awkward Resurfaced Video

Trump Admits That The Economy Fares Better Under Democrats In Awkward Resurfaced Video

In his State of the Union address earlier this year, President Donald Trump triumphantly said that "the years of economic decay are over."

Against all evidence, Trump frequently claims that former President Barack Obama's administration tanked the national economy.

In reality, Obama inherited one of the worst economies in American history when he was elected after the 2008 financial crisis. Before the end of his two terms as President, GDP growth reached highs that Trump has yet to match.

The current President credits himself with the enviable pre-pandemic unemployment rate, but virtually never acknowledges that the rate was the continuation of a years-long reduction in unemployment that began during Obama's tenure.

Now, a resurfaced video of Trump in a 2004 interview shows him admitting that Democrats are better at maintaining a stable economy than Republicans.

Watch below.

Trump said:

"It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now it shouldn't be that way, but if you go back, it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats."

For once, even Trump's critics agreed with him.

In addition to killing over 180 thousand Americans, the virus has left millions suddenly unemployed and struggling to make ends meet.

Trump's critics don't trust him to lead the recovery.
